Before a class the teacher can briefly describe what will be taught
This will help the students to know what to expect in the lesson
At end of class students can write down 3 things that they learned (collected by teacher) and teacher writes on board what he/she felt the 3 things the students should have learned
This will help the students know if they understood the lesson or if they should do more on their own or seek additional instruction
Teachers should provide students with tools (or tricks) to help them learn when teaching lessons
Examples:
First letter association technique - acronyms
ex. Order of operations in math
P lease E xcuse M y D ear A unt S ally
( P arenthesis, E xponents, M ultiply, D ivide, A dd, S ubtract)
Rhyme Techniques – Make a rhyme to remember a fact
Encourage students to use these techniques when learning new material – this will help them remember longer when information is relative to something else
